Make Kebler Corner basecamp for your next Colorado fishing adventure. The North Fork Valley has fishing opportunities for both spin rod or fly rod fishermen. The North Fork of the Gunnison and the Gunnison River are abundant with Rainbow and Brown Trout. This area is also home to several high alpine lakes and streams that contain Cutthroat, Brook Trout and more. The famed Taylor River (near Gunnison) is home to some of the largest Rainbow Trout in Colorado; the Taylor River has a Kokanee Salmon run that occurs every fall.
If you prefer lake fishing, try your luck in Paonia Reservoir or Crawford State Park Reservoir where you can fish for Perch and Crappie as well as Channel Catfish, Largemouth Bass or even Northern Pike. While in the area, you may also want to visit the Hotchkiss National Fish Hatchery – it is the perfect family field trip for fish enthusiasts.
